Laugh, I was seriously worried that might happen back when the black Friday sub $100 M91/30 deals from Classic happened way back in '14.  Thankfully none ever did and now they are high dollar collectors items!

Good thing I don't shop at that horrid place nea1 but...

Sounds like your throwing[/glow] the gantlet down... So... There's like 352 days according to my fingers and toes, had to use some sticks to carry the hundreds...but 352 days till next Christmas.  :) I'm off into the hills and hollars...  to find.... that special one...  Merry Pre Christmas RM...  rofl2

Sounds like a worthy GoFundMe campaign:

Buy Joe one of “Uncle Joe’s Proletariat Pokers”

…well, at least more worthy than some of the other GFM campaigns I’ve seen  rofl

I had to double take on those magazines too FC, they look like 30 rounders though.  Quite straight though, I wonder if they are x39?

Also, don't you guys go getting any crazy idears now!

 Which x39??  5.45x39 highcap bananna shaped bullet dispensers do have slightly less of a bend than 7.62x39, they could be some 5.45mm goodness.. seriously could have lead to a PD comment or two.. China might have straightened the bend..  rofl2



Yeah, I considered a go fund me.. being a technotard I'm still figuring out the bits and pieces.  Also thought about passing an offering plate around and taking donations..  like a get RM a Mosin campaign..
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Hadn't even thought of that, did the Chinese ever use 5.45x39?

Maybe those are Type 81s with 5.8x42mm sized magazines?

China never addopted the 5.45 and I don't know if China would supply its own 5.8 caliber to other nations, but I know they made 5.45, a Norinco 88-1 is a 5.45 Chinese AK74.  Ammo logistics in the middle east for the ammo would be easier with the 5.45 round as well.  With enough money, I'm sure they will make what ever you want.

Yeah, magazines. Makes sense. Just an odd angle. Squids shouldn't stack 'em to where a guy can't see clearly!  chuckles1

They almost look like 40rd mags in perspective to the AK's.

Thanks HN!

The pic has an odd effect to it, but do those pistol grips look unusually long to anyone else? If it wasn't for the ones going out over the magazines?, I'd write it off as an illusion. If you look at the pics from without blowing them up, they look more normal length. I guess it's the usual length. I dunno.  dntknw1 I'm going to quit looking at all the AK's going to the scrapper now. It's making me see things... ???

 And I like the one AK with the red furniture, too. Actually, there's quite a few with red furniture mixed in.
